In between all of my meetings this week, I have been fitting in as many visits to exhibitions and places that are part of London Design Festival. I have come across some very interesting and inspiring exhibitions, shops and creations. Here are a list of the things I saw and Loved during the first few days at LDF.
Southbank exhibition Centre shop; https://shop.southbankcentre.co.uk/products (The perfect shop to waste money on things you don’t need but want!)
Oxo Tower ; http://www.harveynichols.com/oxo-tower-london (Eating, shopping, relaxing, artists and creatives)
Loco Mocean; http://www.locomocean.com/index.php (Huge money wasting shop, hilarious though!)
Across from the Oxo Tower, The African Caribbean design diaspora;
Gary Marsh ; http://www.garymarshsculptor.com/pieces/html/11.html (African inspired sculptures – exaggerated faces, softly toned but with a huge presence within the room)
Berjo Mouanga; http://berjomouanga.prosite.com/2083/172293/gallery/african-diaspora-cinema (Digital artwork printed on shirts, cinema history and film posters from four different countries)
Jeremy Salmon; http://jasimages.com/ (Beautiful, vibrant paintings on canvas)
Lindsay Robertson; http://www.lindsayrobertson.com/ (Amazing photography work)
The African Caribbean exhibition was really touching and the people involved chose very inspiring, emotional subjects. It was an interesting exhibition and I recommend spending that extra 30 minutes of your time, here, which is guaranteed to make your day.
Mr Jones Watches; http://www.mrjoneswatches.com/last-laugh/ – very creative and interesting watches.
